The city lies on the north-eastern slopes of Shahdag mountain, at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level, on the right bank of the Kudyal river.This had been the 18th-century capital of local potentate Fatali Khan, but later became a provincial backwater once the khanate had been absorbed into the Russian Empire (1806). North across the river is Girmisi Gasaba, a unique Jewish settlement. And to the east, the new town stretches 3km to Flag Square where a monumental trio of 21st-century public buldings boast proud stone facades and pediments. Quba is a popular getaway in itself but more particularly a gateway to Azerbaijan’s most interesting and remote mountain villages.
